Call for Proposals (Pluralism and Civil Exchange)

Summary:
The Mercatus Center seeks to support scholars, thinkers, writers, and doers addressing the challenge of sustaining liberal democratic pluralism and institutions.

We are interested in receiving proposals for grants to support projects such as books, innovative teaching/training tools, interactive web platforms and applications, Internet writing (e.g., newsletters, blogs, Twitter engagement), workshops, fiction and artistic endeavors, commercially

The Mercatus Center seeks to support scholars, thinkers, writers, and doers addressing the challenge of sustaining liberal democratic pluralism and institutions. What insights and solutions can help us better understand and improve upon how we can coexist and live together peacefully amidst deep divides and differences? This effort requires an interdisciplinary, cross-ideological effort from scholars and practitioners committed to fostering a pluralism that advances a truly liberal cosmopolitan society.

We are interested in receiving proposals for grants to support projects such as books, innovative teaching/training tools, interactive web platforms and applications, Internet writing (e.g., newsletters, blogs, Twitter engagement), workshops, fiction and artistic endeavors, commercially viable entertainment, and beyond. Projects can be undertaken independently; under the auspices of a non-profit, university, firm, or other existing entity; or in some cases on an ‘in-house’ basis at Mercatus.

We welcome people and small groups from various backgrounds to apply. We’re especially interested in action-oriented, scalable projects that large foundations may consider too risky or weird to fund. Support may include amounts ranging from $100 to $100,000 or beyond. Small initial investments that demonstrate success or promise may be quickly followed by much larger grants.

To submit a proposal, send a description of no more than one page on what you would like to accomplish and why you’re the right person or group to take it on. For projects that may be a potential match, we’ll be in touch quickly.

Send all submissions to [email protected].
